The Private Krakow: Photographic Journey Through Time tour starts and ends in Krakow. The Private Krakow: Photographic Journey Through Time is a photography tour that takes 3 hours.

A unique way to experience local life in Kraków, the most artistic of Polish cities, is to become an artist for a day. Join our passionate photographer and guides, who are founders of an artistic group called Polish Obscura, and travel back in time to capture historic Krakow as they would have done in the late 19th century, with a handmade camera. You will be guided to some breathtaking spots, many of which will be off the main tourist trail, and your photographer guide will teach you how to take an interesting shot. You’ll even develop the image yourself in an old-school dark room — how’s that for a quirky and original souvenir to take home?! Oh and we’ll throw in a couple of stops at our favourite local cafés to try some Polish treats along the way too! 
This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.

“Worth every single Euro I paid. Simona's suggestions spilled over from my three hour tour with her to the rest of my stay in Venice, getting me off the beaten "tourist" path and to some lesser known places.”
ITINERARY

If you would like to explore some of the prettiest spots in Krakow and learn how to turn your coffee can into a photo camera at home, then this is a perfect tour for you. If you want to find out how easy it is to transform your bathroom or storage cupboard into a photo developing room, then this is also an excellent tour for you. Finally, if you’d like to make a picture with a handmade camera, develop it yourself and take it home as a souvenir than this is the best tour ever for you! 

You will meet a local artist and guide, founders of a photographic group Polish Obscura, who will share with you the analogue technique of pinhole photography. It is so simple that it can be explained and presented over a lovely cup of tea. So far, so good!

Once you understand the process and you have put your handmade camera together, we’ll take a stroll around the charming streets of Krakow. You will be given some artistic and creative tips to help you capture the beauty of our fair city and we will share with you some fascinating anecdotes about particular landmarks and areas, starting with the famous Sukiennice and St Mary’s Basilica. 

We’ll also get off the tourist trail and explore some of our favourite hidden spots, walking side by side with a passionate local, seeing the city through their eyes. 

Don’t worry either, as while the art and culture that surrounds you will be taking care of your soul, your body will not be forgotten! There will be time to try a local snack and to treat ourselves to one or two traditional delicacies as well as some top notch Polish craft beers produced in the small breweries that dot the city centre and its surrounding suburbs. 

This delightful tour will take you back in time to an era of where analogue photography was the norm. You will see how Krakow looked one hundred years ago and as we walk you’ll be able to compare the past and the present and decide for yourself if you think it has changed a lot. 

Your tour will end once your images have been developed. Before you go, don’t forget to ask your expert local guide for tips on what else to see and do in Krakow and for further advice on unique photograph opportunities around the city. 

This tour is priced for a minimum group size of two travellers. A solo traveller may still book this private experience but will be charged the base rate for two travellers.
